Rockhampton’s Clovendoe is ready to up the ante

Co-founder of the international award-winning Saleyards Distillery in Rockhampton has discovered a few things throughout her life…

1. You can’t make a good spirit without quality ingredients,
2. The distilling process is a journey within itself and,
3. Women can have their own distilling company. 

This week, following a long-time love of carefully sourcing and delicately curating three blends of botanicals that underpin her secret recipe, Catie Fry is proud to announce the launch of the Clovendoe Distilling Co. brand.

The growingly popular vapour-infused spirits, which are intentionally crafted to speak for themselves and be enjoyed with little interference, are set to take to the distilling stage as one of the newest all-female founded and owned distilleries in the world!

“It’s been some time coming, but we are proud to have finally arrived,” Catie said. “Not only is Queensland already famous for its pristine beaches, tropical islands and sunshine, but now we can add Clovendoe Distilling Co to that list.”

“The natural beauty and easy-going attitude of our home is our inspiration for using the best ingredients that nature has to offer to curate a refined spirit.”

Capricorn Enterprise CEO Mary Carroll extended her congratulations to Catie and the Clovendoe Distilling Co. team for turning their vision into reality.

“With the ongoing success of Saleyards Distillery, there is absolutely no doubt that we will be seeing Clovendoe on the international award nominee list and our destination is so proud to celebrate this achievement,” Mary said.

From ‘seed’ to ‘sprout’ to ‘stem’, Clovendoe is now ready to blossom!
